Dallas, Texas; October 27, 2007 – Peaches Uniforms, a leading manufacturer of uniforms and scrubs for women working in healthcare professions, announced today that the Katherine Heigl Collection will be available in retail medical supply stores nationwide as well as online medical apparel outlets on Monday, October 22nd, 2007. Inspired by television and film star Katherine Heigl, the Katherine Heigl Collection is the first celebrity-endorsed line of uniforms and scrubs to come to the market.

The collection, which reflects current runway and lifestyle trends, was designed to empower women in healthcare to express their personal style while maintaining a professional appearance. The line features expressive styles, flattering silhouettes, hip colors and cool prints, with edgy, metropolitan sensibilities.

According to Karen Albert, vice president, Uniform World, “Our customers are genuinely excited to get their hands on this collection. The designs are trendy, the colors come from the latest fall fashions and the cuts introduce a whole new stylish edge to the scrubs market. The Katherine Heigl Collection truly injects some much-needed panache and flair into healthcare uniforms.”

“Women in healthcare have been buzzing about the collection since it made the headlines back in the summer,” said Karla Bakersmith, president, Scrubs and Beyond. “There is nothing like the Katherine Heigl Collection on the market today. The collection is smart, innovative and movie-star chic.”

Peaches Uniforms CEO Barry Rothschild is looking forward to rolling out the line. “The initial feedback we’ve received on the Katherine Heigl Collection has been overwhelmingly positive,” Rothschild said. “We are pleased to offer women who wear medical apparel a line that is not only stylish, but also functional, comfortable, and durable – and all at affordable prices.”

There are four design groups within the Katherine Heigl Collection this season, each reflecting the spirit of Heigl’s personal style:

• London - Paying tribute to England's home of kitschy trends, London features mod details and pop colors along with chic city black and gray with a dose of hot pink and stark white.
• Connecticut - Connecticut is high on style and minute details against a backdrop of white and tones of sea blue. Crisp clean lines shine through straight pants and subtle classy elements like angled stitch pockets and blazer-style jackets.
• Los Angeles - Fit for every hip-casual starlet, Los Angeles embodies the city's laid-back vibe with a collection of easy care, easy wear separates. The comfort-architected pieces and denim inspired details are complimented by hoodies and drawstring waist tops.
• Seattle - This look is designed for the adventurous – echoing the versatility of cargo pants with multiple pockets and drawstring leg details. A custom floral print brings the collection together with hints of coral and hunter green.

The designs are appropriate for women of all ages who work in hospitals, private practices, clinics, dental offices, labs, spas and other healthcare environments. Peaches Uniforms uses high-quality, soil-release fabrics to ensure long-lasting wear, comfort and durability.
